It seems to me they would go in cycles of adding harder stuff, then simplifying .
Think of the songs, or jams they added in the 73-75 period, only to drop them later. They played Franklin's Tower more than they did the full suite, . Seemed it was always a struggle . An unfair, but somewhat true quote form anti-Dead Dylan critic, Clinton Hyland about the band, " With the ambition of the John Coltrane Quartet, and the musical ability of The 1910 Fruitgum Company"( I would have liked to hear Weir to sing "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy") . Or as Phil said, " Lame, but noble" .
